Congrats to the 2019 Farm to School Cook-off Teams!

The Maine Department of Education’s (DOE) Child Nutrition Department hosted another successful Farm to School Cook-off this spring! In our 4th year we had nine teams participating and held three regional cook-offs in different parts of the state. Congratulations to RSU 12- Chelsea Elementary School for taking home the grand prize!

BIG thank you to the cook-off teams who participated this year: Falmouth, RSU 54, Yarmouth, Auburn, RSU 12, Cherryfield, South Portland, RSU 22 and RSU 38. These teams went above and beyond to compete. They gave their time and energy, not to mention cooking in unfamiliar kitchens in front of multiple people. Thank you for making the cook-off a fun experience for all!

Visit the DOE website here for more information on the cook-off and to access the winning recipes. Stay tuned for the 2019 Farm to School Cook-book, which is a collection of recipes from the cook-off. Due to be released in the Fall 2019!
